When we have a flame out (heaven forbid!), we can walk to get our plane. When they have a flame out, they need a long fishing rod

Whats the vibe on the Venice Huckfest? Big bang or dud?

Trying to decide if I want to push it to one of the mags and make the trip.

I don't know Andy. I might go, but it has been weird. I don't think any of the guys that put it on get on here at all. We are 2 or 3 weeks out and still no info about what it will cost, prizes. Just a hotel list. Looks like postal and TonyG are going. For me it is a 4 hour ride, and that is a week after my 4 hour ride to Jax RC. Looks like a few of the local pilots will be attending the IMAC just north of there that weekend. So I would think if you want the field all to yourself and fly your butt off it might be a good event for that. I will seriously consider going only if the weather is going to be absolutely perfect. Meaning moderate temps, 0 wind and 0 chance of rain. Other than that I'll stay home, get ready for the Nall!
